Basics of Mechanical Engineering

Basics of Mechanical Engineering
Basics of mechanical engineering with introduction to all courses, subjects, topics and basic concepts - I have personally interviewed many mechanical engineers for jobs at various companies. During several interviews, I have observed that many job seekers give incomplete answers or wrong answers to some of the technical questions asked during interview. This gives a very bad impression and chances of losing the job opportunity increase.

It is pertinent to mention here that it is not easy for all engineers to remember all basic concepts of mechanical engineering because over time, our memory fades away and we can only remember those things which are continuously in use in our daily routine life/ job activities. Here on this mechanical engineering website, I have compiled all the basic concepts of courses taught in mechanical engineering degree. Some important subjects have already been added and more mechanical engineering courses will be added soon.

It is advisable for all mechanical engineers to keep on revising these concepts. It will help them improve work efficiency and performance in interviews for better jobs. When you are a mechanical engineer, everyone expects you to give answers accurately to some of the basic questions about mechanical engineering concepts. After a few years of graduation, mechanical engineers even forget what entropy and enthalpy is.

      1. Dear Farhan,
        This is just a start. I am currently working on adding few more topics from subjects like Fluid Mechanics, Heat Transfer, Design and Manufacturing, Robotics etc. As soon as these subjects will be added, a pdf will be compiled for all students :)

    2. Respected Sir,
      I find these topics very sure to be asked during interview. But is it possible that all these above topics are present in the form of a single book named interview q&a for mechanical engineering?? Bcoz i would be happy to purchase it.

      1. Thanks a lot Kailas. Do save the link for future use and recommend it to your friends as well. If a mechanical engineer gives wrong answer to a basic mechanical engineering concept, it is simply a rejection in interview.

    Are Engineers Favourite Among Girls?

    What do girls think about men who are engineers and what type of engineers are most favourite among girls? A survey was conducted by a team of aboutmech with members chosen from different countries. Each team member carried out a neutral survey in his/ her country to evaluate what females think about most of the engineers from different engineering branches. An overview of different questions asked in survey is given below:

    Question: Which male engineers do you find more attractive as a husband?
    Almost 50% women voted for mechanical engineers to be the most attractive husbands among other engineers. So mechanical engineers are most favourite among girls as a husband. They find them more trustworthy, intelligent, and creative. A married women from California said, “If your husband is a mechanical engineer, he will help you in everyday tasks. Because mechanical engineers are good team players and they have creative ideas about everything.”

    Best CV Format for Mechanical Engineers

    Fifty percent engineers fail to grab a dream job because of basic faults in their CVs/ Resume. This article tells you about best CV format for mechanical engineers and how you are supposed to design your CV when applying for jobs. You CV is your first impression on future employer. He/ she does not know you. Your CV is the only representation of your personality. He/ she may select or reject you after first glance on your resume. 
    I have experienced shortlisting and interviewing candidates for different jobs. I was astonished to learn that most of the candidates simply copy paste each others CVs without any changes at all. These types of CVs are rejected immediately. I am not trying to tell you that you should avoid copying, rather i ma telling you to refrain from giving your CV to your friends.
    An ideal CV consists of following portions:

    Engineering Mechanics - Introduction

    The Engineering Mechanics is that branch of Engineering-science which deals with the principles of mechanics along with their applications to engineering problems. It is sub-divided into the following two main groups:

    (a) Statics, and (b) Dynamics

    The Statics is that branch of Engineering Mechanics which deals with the forces and their effects, while acting upon the bodies at rest.

    The Dynamics is that branch of Engineering Mechanics which deals with the forces and their effects, while acting upon the bodies in motion. It is further sub-divided into the following two branches:

    (i) Kinetics, and (ii) Kinematics

    The Kinetics is that branch of Dynamics, which deals with the bodies in motion due to the application of forces.

    The Kinematics is that branch of Dynamics which deals with the bodies in motion without taking into account the forces which are responsible for the motion.
